Too Plain To Permit Being Said

     I’m sure my Gentle Readers are all aware of the New York Times’s rather self-serving front-page motto: All the News That’s Fit to Print. There have been some send-ups of that bit of journalistic pseudo-piety. In these latter days of the legacy media, now that they’ve openly embraced the role of information managers for members of the Establishment, such pretenses have become more ironic than anything else.

     Consider these recent articles and events:

     Each of those stories pulls the covers off something the Establishment would greatly prefer that you not be aware of, much less introduce to active discussion. I’m sure the readership of Liberty’s Torch needs no deep explication of them from me. The point is too clear to need any such thing: These are things we are not supposed to discuss.

     Some of them point to frauds being perpetrated on us. One fraud has lasted for a whole century. All of them imply Establishmentarian agendas and methods for acquiring, retaining, or increasing elite control of American life. What coverage of them has appeared in the “major” media? I haven’t seen any, but then, I strive not to patronize those who seek to program me.

     Meanwhile the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse are saddled and ready to ride:

  • War in Eastern Europe, with potential NATO involvement;
  • Food shortages are imminent, owing to fertilizer unavailability;
  • U.S. funded biolabs in Ukraine that possess “dangerous” substances;
  • Prospect of death by freezing as heating oil becomes ever more expensive.

     People have been wondering “Are these the End Times of the Book of Revelation?” for awhile now. I must say that from the above perspective, it’s not looking good.


     I’m very tired. I’ve been blogging at one site or another since 1997. Twenty-five years of writing about this crap has left me wondering whether there’s a point to any of it. It’s getting steadily more difficult to soldier on.

     I’d be unsurprised to learn that the majority of my colleagues in this pastime are just as tired. As for those Americans who consume our output: How do you feel about the state of play? Are you beginning to think your time might be better spent packing your basement with canned goods and ammunition?

     Oh, don’t mind me. What am I? Just an old crank, after all. I have no greater power to predict the future than any other man…but some predictions are so short-range that the possibility that they’re wrong seems below the threshold of plausibility:

John Anderton: Why’d you catch that?
Danny Witwer: Because it was going to fall.
John Anderton: You’re certain?
Danny Witwer: Yeah.
John Anderton: But it didn’t fall. You caught it. The fact that you prevented it from happening doesn’t change the fact that it was *going* to happen.

     The predictions:

  • that our currency will continue to be drained of its value;
  • that the Death Cults will continue to campaign against the right to life;
  • that nations – including ours – will continue to develop plague weapons;
  • and that as the price of necessities rises, the poorest among us will die of it;

     …are so short-range, and so well supported by the evidence of history, that to bet against them would be the act of a fool.

     But we’re being systematically deflected from discussing those predictions. The Establishment doesn’t want such things in the public discourse. If you can be silenced, you will be silenced. This too is well supported by the evidence of history. Too many rice bowls could get overturned to respect your “freedom of speech.” It’s a matter of national security!

     With that, I believe it’s time to take my dog Sophie to the vet. Forget all the above. If you can’t, perhaps you should “keep it under your hat.” And do have a nice day.

    If you may recall (or not) I had a two-parter at redpilljew discussing the End Times.  Of note from that…

    In Judaism, the Mosiach will come “on the ass of a donkey which, from my Orthodox friend in Jerusalem, is interpreted to mean that he will come when the land turns green – donkey dung being fertilizer.  (Not sure of the logic chain, but there it is.)  And the land IS turning green.  E.g., on our last trip there we planted some trees in a carob orchard.
    On a business trip a few years ago I ended up sitting next to a Muslim who, cuing off my kippa, was very friendly in discussing Islam.  According to him, the Islamic end times will come when Mecca turns green.  He said it is turning green (I’ll take his word for it).

    SOMETHING is coming and it’s not just a physical conflict.

    Nothing wrong with stacking cans in the basement, whether they are filled with food or ammo. Going it alone is a fool’s game, though. We may all be tired of trying to organize to save the world and nation but a little more energy expended in building a small, local support group in one’s community might be worth the effort. If nothing else, you might be able to take advantage of quantity discounts on necessities, buying by the case rather the box. Anything to stretch the failing dollar will help. Having a trusted friend or three to watch your back during an afternoon nap makes for a more restful sleep.

    Hope all goes well with Sophie.

    I have prepped as much as possible, strategically and tactically, for the rides of the Horsemen. And now that this is done, I’m just enjoying my little bubble of sanity here in a small town. There is solace in the appreciation that one has done all that is possible to do.

    Honestly, had I not had the internet to keep me two clicks from terror, I would not even be aware that anything is going on. Yes, there are places like this still left in America.

    Step away from the information firehose a bit and it all becomes manageable. Remember that the first three  principles of brainwashing is repetition, repetition, and repetition, and the fourth is Scare Hell Out Of Them. And we are doing it to ourselves. One of the mental illnesses wrought by the internet is the insatiable need to know everything that everyone in every country is doing in the last hour.

    Just. Turn. It. Off.

      Quoted for truth.

      Bill Quick sometimes gets into a funk for the same reason that Francis expressed: I’ve been watching this and reporting on this for decades and it’s getting worse and hardly anyone’s listening. Why go on? But then he pulls his boots back on and gets back into it.

    Yeah, with each passing day,  we become more disassociated from our fellow human beings.  Our neighbors, members of our community. As they actually become our mortal enemy. The most valuable thing I possess? The few friends I have made in my new home, in small town Arizona.

    I could no more give up on trying to save my beloved Lady Liberty.  Than stop breathing. Am I tired …. you have no idea.  Not a sympathy ploy. Just my reality, there’s not much left of me. One brokedown clown. Wouldn’t a real actual vacation be something!

    But the debt I owe, to those Giant Americans that came before me (Major Don Weide, enlisted WWII, discharged as a Major). Will never be repaid. That however will not stop me from snapping a Salute.

    You can have my Country, when you can pry it from my cold dead fingers. When at long last, they have managed to finally extinguish the light? That moment is not here. Until then, lead, follow, or get the f*ck out of the way (and that is a generalized command. And most definitely not directed at FWP. We don’t slag, and most certainly not the keepers of the flame).


  1. I think there must be a 5th horseman somewhere – the Horse Carrying Massive Stupid. That seems, to me, to be the only explanation for the Explosion of Dumb that we have been splattered with.

    Are you beginning to think your time might be better spent packing your basement with canned goods and ammunition?

    Ammunition is good, but rope is re-useable, as are lamp posts.

    • TRX on April 1, 2022 at 8:47 AM

    how do you feel

    I think it has moved into the end game.


    Right now we’re on the track for “Orwellian dystopia.”  But should the usurper regime be replaced, I expect the pendulum will swing near “police state” at least for a while.
